A further highlight of the event will be the finals of the EIT Digital Challenge - Digital Finance category - showcasing eight of the best Digital Finance scaleups drawn from the UK and Europe.
Talking ahead of the event, EIT Digital's UK Director Dennis Moynihan, said:
"There is now arguably no sector more subject to disruptive innovation than financial services. Customer expectations are changing, powered by the take-up of revolutionary personal technology. Global financial infrastructure is ever-shifting and increasingly complex. These changes however are driving countless opportunities for eagle-eyed entrepreneurs. Some of these innovations will be game-changing - the trick now is to identify and seize these opportunities, and to profit from them.
"Our event will not only showcase some of the best digital finance startups as they vie for the top spot in our finals competition, our expert discussion panel will also explore how Fintech scaleups are impacting the industry, and what opportunities exist for both entrepreneurs and adopters in London and beyond. I'm really looking forward to what's promising to be a lively competition and an insightful discussion!”
